The Annual Conference and Exhibition of the National Housing Federation is taking part at the ICC, Birmingham from 21st September 2016 through to 23rd September 2016.
The event looks at the position of housing associations and the regulations that are set to change the sector beyond recognition. Treework Environmental Practice has established relationships with a number of housing associations throughout the country and we are delighted to be attending an event that will look at the complexities of the forthcoming changes in the industry as well as the initiatives that will be put into place to deal with the challenges set for the future.
We have developed a highly effective approach that has helped housing associations meet their duty of care for public safety around trees. Our dedication to meeting the needs of these organisations has enabled our clients to manage tree stocks in a more efficient and cost-effective manner as well as responding to enquiries and concerns of residents and users of open spaces within the estates. Our team of passionate and committed experts seek to actively engage with clients at the start of and throughout a project in order to clearly understand the priorities, budgetary constraints and how survey data will be used. This process enables us to advise and supply a level of support even after the field inspections have been completed.
Our proven knowledge and application of the principles of risk in relation to trees extend across our field-based team, who are extensively trained and fully supported by leading consultants in this area. This ensures that when we undertake a tree inventory or walk-over survey, we are able to apply a sound understanding of risk in the context of the surroundings and to identify higher risk trees and areas. We then highlight these to the client and use them to inform an ongoing programme of work that prioritises higher risk locations and trees.
Over the next three days, Treework will maintain a presence at the National Housing Federation Conference and Housing Exhibition by putting our Operations Manager, Simon Parfey, ‘on the ground’ and available to discuss effective tree management approaches for housing associations. If you would like to get in touch with Simon to arrange a brief meeting at the event or a dedicated meeting after the event, feel free to drop him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0117 244 0012.
